The governors seek to appoint an enthusiastic, well-educated member of staff to join our Economics team from September 2021 or earlier if preferred by the successful applicant. We offer an exciting opportunity in an exceptional team and a School that is passionate about economics as a subject.

Our ideal candidate must be passionate about economics and ready to nurture enquiry. This commitment, and a strong economics degree or background in a closely related field of work is more important to us than qualified teacher status.

Reading School is a selective boys’ state school located in central Reading. Economics is one of our most important and popular subjects. The subject is thriving and has a reputation for academic excellence. We typically have four sets of around 20 students, and the 2019 cohort achieved 94% Grades 9 to7 in their GCSE Economics. We also have three sets of around 20 students in each year group at A Level and the 2019 A Level cohort achieved a 97.5% A* to B record.

A rich range of co-curricular activities are also very popular and include lectures, discussion clubs and student investment challenges. We therefore seek a proactive, engaging individual with a passion for stretching motivated and academically gifted individuals and an enthusiasm for helping our students interpret the economics in the world around them.

This is a full time post commencing in September 2021, or earlier if it would suit our ideal candidate.

A recruitment and retention allowance may be available for an exceptional candidate.

Closing date: Friday 19 February 2021.

Reading School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and the successful applicant will be subject to DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) clearance.

Only registered members can apply for jobs.
